28 Week appt.

So I had my 28 week appointment today, everything seems to be going well. My blood pressure and urine was fine. I found out my glucose and anemia tests all came back fine. Jackson is measuring between 26 and 27 weeks, but she said this was okay even though I am 28 weeks. I have been having really bad rib and back pain on the right side only lately, so she is concerned this could be my gallbladder. I have to monitor my diet for the next three weeks before my next appointment to see if certain foods are triggering the pain. If it turns out that it is my gallbladder causing the issues I will have to go on a low-fat diet for the rest of the pregnancy to help alleviate the pain.

Three weeks until my next appointment and then every two weeks after that! :D

Thanks! My older sister ended up having to have her's removed after having her children too.

Again glad to hear Jackson is great and hope your gallbladder doesn't give you to much trouble

I hope your gall bladder behaves itself! Does anything help the pain at this point?

As long as I am good about what I eat and avoid fatty or spicy foods it really seems to be helping. I have had no pain today, but unfortunately have been sick all day too, not being able to hold anything down. Starting to feel better now though. ;)
